iPhone applications offer a hot opportunity for developers. Until
the open source MonoTouch project, this field was limited to those
familiar with Apple’s programming languages. Now .NET and C# developers
can join the party. Professional iPhone Programming with MonoTouch and .NET/C#is the first book to cover MonoTouch, preparing developers to take advantage of this lucrative opportunity.
This book is for .NET developers that are interested in creating
native iPhone applications written in .NET/C#. These developers want to
use their existing knowledge. While .NET developers are always
interested in learning, they also recognize that learning Objective-C
and the specifics of the iPhone can be overwhelming. Those developers
interested in MonoTouch will recognize that the cost of MonoTouch is
easily made up by the ability to quickly target the iPhone using a
language that they are already familiar with.
This book is
designed for .NET developers that want to target the iPhone. It is
designed to help you get up to speed with the iPhone, not to really
teach you about the .NET Framework or C# language, which we assume you
This book is designed with introductory
material in Chapters 1 thru 4. You should read Chapters 1 thru 4
sequentially. These chapters introduce the MonoTouch product, the basics
of developing with MonoTouch and MonoDevelop, and finally, the basics
of presenting data to a user with screen and data controls and how to
develop a user interface for the iPhone. Once you are comfortable with
these concepts, you can typically move from one chapter to another and
not necessarily have to read the chapters sequentially.
The wait is over! For the millions of .NET/C# developers who have
been eagerly awaiting the book that will guide them through the
white-hot field of Android application programming, this is the book. As
the first guide to focus on Mono for Android, this must-have resource
dives into writing applications against Mono with C# and compiling
executables that run on the Android family of devices.
Putting the proven Wrox Professional format into practice, the
authors provide you with the knowledge you need to become a successful
Android application developer without having to learn another
programming language. You'll explore screen controls, UI development,
tables and layouts, and MonoDevelop as you become adept at developing
Android applications with Mono for Android.
Professional Android Programming with Mono for Android and .NET/C# gets you up and running with Android app development today.
